      The Mother of the Mountains of Attack - "I walk in the dark and serve the light"

      Foggy blue sky, verdant grass. Woman, a woman holds a bow and arrow, aiming at the sky. This is Woman At The opening of War is confusing, but somehow I watched it late at night, but I calmed down and wanted to watch it. The reason why I use its English name to call this movie, rather than the Taiwanese translation of "The Aunt of the Attack" or "Women in War" here in the mainland, I think the English sounds more neutral in terms of understanding, and the Chinese is broad and profound....

      The charm of independent women in Iceland

      In fact, I feel that this film does not highlight the importance of environmental protection, nor does it talk about how the Icelandic government controls speech, nor does it highlight the "profit-making" of Chinese companies, and there is not even a lot of discussion about whether we should choose environmental protection or development. It is more to give people an idea, to think about whether the road we have been taking is right or not. And more importantly, to show the...

      beautiful iceland

      Iceland is the most expensive country in the world. When people boil cold water at home, it is natural mineral water, and when they boil hot water, they are hot spring water. There is a reason for less pollution! This requires the participation of the whole people and the whole government! As a country living in a country that does not know what environmental protection is, garbage classification has not been popularized for many years, and plastic products are flooded. I really can't...

      loving viking warrior

      Attack on the aunt, the name is very suitable! The scenery of Iceland and the blood of the Vikings are fully reflected. Most of the various foreshadowings in the film were guessed, but I still didn't expect the big drift during the final visit, which was really eye-opening! Although it is against the mergers and acquisitions of Chinese companies, I am still delighted when I see the female pig practicing Tai Chi and the TCL TV at home. Made in China and Chinese culture have gone so far....

      Like, but far from God. The whole film is quite comfortable to watch, yes, why are Icelanders so cute. The natural scenery of Iceland definitely has its own bonus. I like the free and easy way of the heroine, and the addition of the alleged cousin. But what I like the most is the setting of "live music". Oh my god, it's so cute. The rhythm of the drums is well...

    Movie quotes

    • Halla: Economic sabotage.

      Ása: It's extremism, which breeds extremism. He who Jives by the sword, dies by the sword.

      Halla: But no one has been hurt, except our country and our planet.

      Ása: It's not the right way to solve this problem.

      Halla: Meditating in some convent, will that change something?

      Ása: It will change me and thus the world I hope.

      Halla: Isn't that egoism, to think it will change the world?

      Ása: The drop hollows the stone.

      Halla: The stone? The mountains are falling on us, we don't have time to wait for drops.

      Ása: Now you're going to save a child and the entire world with it. Isn't that a small drop or is it just vanity?

      Halla: At least I'm doing something for someone else.

    • Ása: You don't need anyone else. You know that you can do it. You're the mom and nothing will stop you.

      [stands up from the bench and faces Halla]

      Ása: What did mom always say?

      Halla: Yeah.

      Ása: Yes, say it.

      Halla: Moms can do anything.

      Ása: [laughs] No, the other thing.

      Halla: Find solutions.

      Ása: Exactly.

    • Baldvin: This is not a joke. Some American has taken over the investigation and Israelis too. They're analyzing the paper. Why did you use an old typewriter? It can be traced.

      Halla: Stop. No one will trace it.

      Baldvin: Why didn't you let me read it before?

      Halla: I just had to get it out, the timing was crucial. And then the girl came...

      Baldvin: [interrupts] But there are weak points they will tear apart.

      Halla: Like what?

      Baldvin: The laws about laws... You're opening up a very dangerous angle, they will totally deform it.

      Halla: People will understand. I've planted the seeds, it can't be stopped.

      Baldvin: They don't want to stop it, but to control it. They will control the discussion.

      Halla: What will be discussed? The real issues.

      Baldvin: Who will tell us what the real issues are?
